There should be a regulator on the output line, looks like this, http://www.aircompressors.us.com/store/i/is.aspx?path=/Shared/images/Powermate/019-0188CT.jpg&lr=t&bw=300&bh=300

by turning the top portion of the regulator you adjust the pressure

The compressor does not get over 40 psi. It simply does not pump over that.

Can I get 80 psi with dials set at 40 psi


this compressor should be able to fill your tires to 80 psi. Look for a pressure switch and adjust it so the motor shuts off at a higher pressure. Do not exceed 100 psi.

My Campbell Hausfeld WL610002AJ Cycles one time turns off at 140 PSI and next time it cycles makes noise and sounds like it locks up.


The model you are using is only rated for 120 psi that could be part of the problem, at 140 psi you have all ready exceded the max load on the psi regulator. You can adjust the regulator so it will turn off at 120 psi and then it would not put a strain on the compressor.

Porter Cable pancake rated at 150 PSI stops at 135 PSI. It has done this since it was new.


If it's pumping up to 135 psi, shutting off and then restarts at the same pressure point since it was new, the pressure switch may have been set low at the factory. I don't know which model you have but most pressure switches have directions inside their cover as to how to adjust the cut-out and cut-in pressures. Be careful doing this, overpressuring the tank is dangerous. There is an adjustment screw or bolt that changes the pressure on the switch spring. Some pressure switches have two screws, one for cut-in and one for cut-out pressure. A few have one that adjust both pressures. If you do adjust the cut-in/cut-out levels, do it slowly and cycle the motor a couple times between each adjustment to see where it turns off and on. If the compressor is doing what you want it to, only pumping to 135 psi, it will live longer than if you adjust it up to 150 psi. Those last 15 psi of air are hard to get and will mean the motor will be running longer and more heat will be building up in the head.

It sounds to me like your regulator is shot. It is the knob you have been turning in the (-) direction. The gauge reading 120 is the regulated pressure and the gauge reading 130 should be the tank pressure. You can find a new regulator from any Ace Hardware store.

Our Brad nailer model SB-1842BN is well oiled but it will shoot the brads just a little into wood or not at all. Help!!


Can u adjust the drive depth on the tip of the gun? My nailers all have a knob to adjust the drive depth. Also, what pressure are you using? I typically shoot mine between 90 and 120 psi. Hope this helps.

The tank pressure is 150 Psi but the regulated pressure is 0. I have never used this compressor.


150 lbs is the amount of pressure in the tank. When you connect a nail gun for instance you cannot nail everything at 150 lbs of pressure, it will blast through. The regulated pressure is at zero because you have the ability to regulate it by turn the know under or beside it to increase the output pressure to your desired amount. I was building a shelf last week and set my regulated to 80lbs with a brad and it blew through the panel and stuck in the floor. After you get to know your nail gun you will be able to regulate it between 60 and 80 depending on the type of wood. Panel - 50 lbs, Oak, 90 lbs, etc. Pleas remember to rate this solution high if it was helpful and explained it to your satisfaction.

Can I limit the pressure to 120 PSI, the upper recommended limit for my nail gun?


adjust your pressure switch on your compressor .remove the cap and turn the screw clockwise to increase and counterclockwise decrease.turn the screw counterclockwise a bit and release some air till the compressor start pumping.then just before to reach 120 psi turn counterclockwise to stop the compressor at 120.then release some air again till it cuts in again and look at what pressure it will stop.keep going that way till you get your 120 psi.cut in should be around 90 psi(30 psi differential)depending what kind of pump you have (if the pump can handle 150 psi )you can adjust it to cut in at 120 and cut off at 150 and install a pressure regulator adjusted to 115 to 120 and get a nice steady pressure going to your nail gun.(the best way to do it!!!)

Adjusting the pressure on the 2340-E


most air compressors have a pressure switch on them.this is used to adjust the desired pressure you want to reach.the second adjustment is for setting the pressure for when you want it to cycle back on.lets say you want it to run at 100 PSI.one of your adjustment in this box will control this , when you are using the unit and the pressure starts to drop to lets say 90 PSI you can adjust the unit to cycle
